I"ve been trying different brands of water soluble oils. First was Grumbacher, then Winsor Newton and now finally found the best; Holbein Duo Aqua Oils. They are just like working with oils. Loveing them. Anyone use a varnish on these? Think I'm going to fix that highlight on the front rose. Didn't see it until just now!

My new iBook is now available to view on your iPad or Mac computer (if you've upgraded to Maverick!) Lots of movies to show you how to mix color and then paint with it!
I found it so much fun to limit myself to these three colors and still make paintings that I'm proud of!
These are the painting that were in the show and here is the YouTube link to the Chelsea, NY show I was in. You can get a good sense of how crowded and noisy these openings are! http://youtu.be/HvTNqN_X-Mo
I used a double primary palette while I was experimenting with primary palettes in order to decide how I wanted to organize my next book. I ended up using a single primary palette. I thought I could get almost as many colors out of three colors as six. Now I'm wondering if these flowers need a bit more detail? I'll look at it tomorrow and try and decide!
